Overview

Versatile body shape with old-school appointments for classic vibe.

The first Gibson J-185 was introduced in 1951, giving players a broader choice of flat-top acoustic guitars. It quickly became a hit. With a slightly smaller body than Gibson’s fabled Super Jumbos, the J-185 offers an excellent alternative for players seeking a smaller body style without sacrificing acoustic power and projection. Traditionally, the J-185 features a body length of 20-1/4", a width of 16", and a body depth of 4-7/8", producing a big sound with clear acoustics, making it equally impressive for powerful strumming or delicate fingerpicking, and everything in between. This J-185 Limited Edition acoustic guitar is built with a Thermally Aged Sitka spruce top complemented by a Vintage Sunburst finish and a flame maple body with multi-ply binding. The Slim Taper mahogany neck sports a rosewood fingerboard with mother-of-pearl parallelogram inlays and bone nut.

The J-185 Limited Edition acoustic guitar ships with a hardshell case.
